Belle or another as Part Time Party Member

I am looking to either modify Belle or introduce another PC who can hang out with the party part-time. She would need to leave the party between 9 and 9:30pm. (Explanation in group email.)

I am thinking a healer Cleric, for instance, who comes in and heals and casts boons/spells. role-plays, and maybe fights a little, but isn't essential to your battles as the evening progresses.

Alternatively, could be an NPC of DM's whom I can role play for a while, early in the evening.

Ideas?

Sorry to hear it. Yes, I think a cleric would work - someone who you could play when you're there, and then become a DMPC when you're not (i.e. still continue in the action when you leave by healing party members, etc.). It would be up to the respective DMs, of course.

I like Belle and am loathe to swap her out. She would be difficult to play as a DMPC, though. SHe can heal, but she is also one of the fighters.
Pondering.

I don't mind introducing a new PC who is not a fighter.

Alternatively or Additionally, I might ask Kili to take over my PC for later part of the evenings.

Alternatively, I might role play an NPC monster or such part of the time and be a DM lackie.

Alternatively, I could skip the Thur games for a while and come back when things are different in my life.

How about a ghost (could be ghost of Belle) who appears and gives warnings and communicates visions... ?? :?:

Belle and Blue, her panther, are called away on another mission.

I am taking a hiatus from Ravenloft. I realized that thurs are dinner nights, with later starts, so I would have to log off after only 30 to 40 mins most nights (considering setup time moves us to 8:30 or 8:45 but the time we are underway) That's just not worth the trouble for everyone to accommodate, IMO.

Will let you know when things change.
